    These days, a lot of us are armed with cameraphones, so it has never been easier to capture an interesting picture.

    I seem to have built up a small collection of images taken on my travels and it would be nice to share these with our members.
    Who knows, we may even be able to use some of them for our ever-popular Caption Competition.


    So what have you snapped recently?


    One of the reasons I have started this thread is try to gain some information on the chap in the picture below.
    I took the photograph whilst stranded in a traffic jam in Huddersfield last July, so maybe some of our Yorkshire members can reveal his identity?

    Another from my collection.

    So, what have you? :)

    Really, MOCAS?

    I wondered if his registration M62 REX may give a clue.

    It's actually M62 RCX. He's modified it with a load of bolts:

    All looks a little too contrived to me...

    If you need to declare yourself eccentric (or believe you are eccentric) - you aren't eccentric.

    Indeed. The penny farthing on the back of an MGB is more eccentric than Jake the knob.

    Spotted on the Hanger Lane gyratory system yesterday. The Stratstone showroom on the A40 is still there, but is now an Aston Martin franchise.
